Fiddle and flute, Arthur P Kenna - piano, New Republic 2333. Two old reels played at a relaxed pace. The Beauty Spot was a popular tune with pipers, and one of Coleman's major influences was the pipes, most prominently being influenced in his youth by travelling piper Johnny Gorman, and in NYC by Michael Anderson. Unfortunately no recordings exist of either musician. Coleman takes a solo for the first time through the Sunny Banks, a nice feature.

This is from one of the few Coleman 78s never to have been reissued on any cassette, LP or CD. Michael Walsh was, according to Harry Bradshaw's notes to his Coleman CDs, Coleman's best man. The flip side of this disc was the two jigs titled "The Lark on the Strand."
